The animation-duration property in CSS is used to define how long an animation should take to complete one cycle. That is it is used to specify the time duration for which animation will be played. 


animation-duration: time|initial|inherit;

Property Value:

  • time: This value is used to specify the length of time for which an animation will complete one cycle. This can be specified in either in seconds or in milliseconds. The default value is 0, which means that no animation will occur.
  • initial: This value is used to set the property to its default value.
  • inherit: This value is used to inherit the property from its parent element.

Example: HTML program to illustrate the animation-duration property in CSS. 


<!DOCTYPE html>
        CSS | animation-duration Property
        #gfg1 {
            animation-name: text;
            animation-duration: 5s;
            animation-iteration-count: infinite;
        #geek1 {
            font-size: 40px;
            text-align: center;
            font-weight: bold;
            color: #090;
            padding-bottom: 5px;
        #geek2 {
            font-size: 17px;
            font-weight: bold;
            text-align: center;
        @keyframes text {

                margin-top: 400px;
            to {
